Carnegie Police Probe Possible Child Luring Incident
CARNEGIE (KDKA) – Police are investigating a possible child luring attempt in Carnegie Monday night.
According to police, a 14-year-old girl on Dick Street was approached by a man in a pickup truck shortly after 8 p.m.
The girl was walking to the family’s vehicle to retrieve a package, when she noticed a vehicle slow down as it got closer to her.
The driver allegedly rolled the window down and asked the girl if she remembered him. The girl said the man told her, “Hey, I don’t bite. Come closer.”
The girl turned and ran up to her porch where she heard the man say, “By the way, you looked cute earlier in your purple jump suit.”
She then entered the house and told her mother about the incident.
The vehicle is described an older-model “beat-up” white pickup truck.
The suspect is described as an older white male with gray hair. He was wearing a camouflage baseball cap at the time of the incident.
“Obviously these situations concern us, the fact that he did mention clothing that she had been wearing [raises] that threat level and we’re extremely concerned about this,” Carnegie Police Chief Jeffrey Harbin said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Carnegie Police Department at (412)-276-4245.
